    ...and then you drop your bike off at the shop for a new tyre, and they tell you to come back "after lunch, some time".

    Watching those 24H blokes work is amazing.

    Yeah, I asked if they adjust the chain: yes, once or twice they swap the front calipers, that gives the guy at the back time to adjust the chain. Adding that on top of changing both wheels and filling it with fuel (no one is allowed to touch anything else on the bike while the fuel is going in), that stop takes about 90s...
